I am convinced swimming and pool running is healing

I try to keep paw pics {better than pecker pics, yo} minimal on here + SM but I have to show you a before the pool and after an hour of swimming/pool running. The difference is incredible! No filter or alterations on either pic.

I feel so good in the water, pretty sure Lu get’s tired of hearing me say that 20 million times.

The inflammation and pain go away, my foot returns to looking normal, and major bonus points it lasts for the rest of the day. Well, until I take a shower since warm/hot water is still not my friend.

I think this pool thing is going to work out after all, so Lu and I signed up for a membership. We can now swim as much as we want all summer. We are overachievers and have big plans to become mermaids.

We were starvin’ Marvin after the pool so we stopped by the grocery store for burger supplies on the way home. Then I enjoyed a little wine while trying out a new pain/inflammatory cream on the paw to see if if would keep the inflammation down in the shower. This stuff is heaven in a bottle or maybe it was the wine?

From the random files…

I have to share this with you because it’s freaking hilarious!  I think my web wizard, Nick figured out why some of your comments were going to spam. #idie

Totally makes sense now that I think about it. I mean a running + life blog = we talk a lot about shoes, not hoe’s WP.

And I think my husband does this on purpose to mess with his Type A wife.

Any Type A peeps out there?

Tell me something random.

How many miles are you running this weekend? Please run some for me!

  1. Testing…Hoes hoes… hoeing, pHOEnix, ecHOE, and diarrHOEa.

    Type A here!

    Random…that wing shot last night, first time I was served wings with only drummettes. I was kinda disappointed not having the actual ‘wing’ part.

    Ran 5 today. I’m running 20 tomorrow. I’ll run 6.8 for me and 13.2 for you.

    Have a kick ass Saturday J!
    Oh and glad the pool running is working. Gives me some hope!

  2. you know I’m now a converted pool worshipper as well, but allow me to be a girl for one sec… I can’t get myself to swim daily (I’m on an every other day regimen right now) because of…my hair. I’m afraid the chlorine will turn it green, and I hate washing it every day because that requires me to try to make it look somewhat un-terrifying every day (it looks better when it’s dirty). I have a swim cap, but it doesn’t keep it completely pool water-free. whaddya think? suck it up buttercup and go swimming?

  3. You know I’m a type A girlie…other wise we wouldn’t be long lost sisters. And swimming makes me starvin’ as well!

  4. Yeah that would bug this type ‘A’ mama. Something random…waiting on dental school apps, my husband who is 38 yrs old decided to change careers and become a dentist so we’re in limbo…for 5 years. 🙂 So weird to start over but it’s excited and I love adventure. My mileage is way low!! I’m slowly creeping up though and at least I’m cross training for once. Yay for the inflammation in your foot getting better.

  5. Ohhhhh I could not handle that crookedness. This weekend, while I was at my brother’s house, I kept noticing one crooked picture frame on a wall of several in a frame collage. I fixed it every time I passed it. Apparently the hook wasn’t straight on it, because I found out later than my mom, SIL, AND brother were fixing it every time they passed it as well. Talk about driving you crazy!

  6. The fact that your comments
    Were gettingb held back bc of hoe being in shoe truly cracks me UP!!!
    I am so glad you are starting to feel back to yourself.. That’s such a tough thing!!! The coolest thing is that you found something that makes you feel normal
    Again-pool running!! You are AWESOME. Your resilience is so inspiring! You’ll be running again before you know it!!!
